Happy Friday everyone! There’s something about a beach and white lace dress that makes for the perfect combination! Every time I’m getting ready to head on a tropical vacation, I find myself searching for the perfect lace dress to add to my cover-up collection. I love this style from ChicWish because it totally works as a cover-up but also just a great spring/summer dress to wear to during the day or night.

What’s your favorite type of dress to take with you on vacation?

xo, Rach

  8. I love this piece from Chicwish! I actually have a couple of pieces from them but the only downside is the shipping time, otherwise they are my go-to for trendy styles!

  14. That dress is amazing! Love that it works for a brunch date or day at the beach.

  15. Clare says:

    You are absolutely right. I think the same thing! Lace/crochet and white. Doesn’t matter what beach, it just has to be a lace or crochet and it has to be white!

  32. carly says:

    These pics are so pretty! I saved a lot of my pregnancy pics and made a photo album of them and hung a few in the nursery. It didn’t occur to me in advance that they would be special for the whole family, but now my son is two and looks through the pregnancy album and always gets excited. He says the cutest things when he looks at it like “Mama and me” “Me in the big belly!”

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
